Review: Urban Decay Obsessions palette

This is a review of the Urban Decay Obsessions palette.  This palette was previously offered as a 500 point perk from Sephora, and a friend of mine kindly gifted this to me. Urban Decay Obsessions

 

This product comes with 4 mini eyeshadows, a mini 24-7 eyeliner pencil, and a sample of the famous Primer Potion.

Although each eyeshadow is small, it was large enough for me to get my brush into it comfortably.  Besides, it takes a long time to use up eyeshadow!

 

Swatches:

From left:

Skimp (shimmery cream), Bust (shimmery cool-toned taupe), Guilt (glittery cool-toned pink), and Oil Slick (black with silver glitter)

Interestingly, while Guilt is a pink eyeshadow, this somehow looks purple on my skin because of my strong yellow-olive undertones.

 

Pros:

  • As with most of the Urban Decay eyeshadows that I have tried before, all of the eyeshadows are very pigmented

Cons:

  • Guilt is a very powdery eyeshadow and kicks up a lot of fall out for me
  • My skin tone is so similar to Skimp that it does not show up on my skin

 

Would I purchase? Maybe.  Bust was a great color. Guilt was a nice color which I liked even though there was a lot of fall out. I am not sure how to use Oil Slick other than as a matte black, which doesn’t make use of the glitter.  Skimp does not work for my skin tone.

 

I’m so glad that I got a chance to use this.  I don’t often get to try out Urban Decay since it is not widely sold in Japan.  Thank you to my dear friend for gifting it to me!

One thought on “Review: Urban Decay Obsessions palette”

  1. This has actually become one of my favorite palettes. I was so excited when I was making a purchase in Sephora and I was shown this as an available perk. I’m finding that both Guilt and Bust kicks up a lot of fall out for me but mainly because those are the two shadows I use the most. Guilt isn’t available for purchase but Bust is available as part of their regular eyeshadow line. I have found that MAC’s Swish is very similar to Guilt as a substitute. I will often use Oil Slick in the outer corners of the eyelid to make everything “pop” especially if wanting to do it as an evening look.
